Summer House star Luke Gulbranson was a guest on co-star Hannah Berner’s podcast, Berning In Hell, on Wednesday and shared why the pair fought before the show’s virtual reunion, as well as where their relationship stands now.
Luke and Hannah had a wide-ranging discussion. They delved into the biggest fight they had before the reunion, which was so hurtful it caused the taping to be “tense,” according to Us Weekly. Viewers didn’t understand the fireworks between the two during the reunion, as the pair appeared to have ended the season on good terms.
What fans didn’t know was that a serious argument between them happened just weeks before filming the special. It was the first spat the pair had ever had and centered on their feelings after watching Summer House as it aired. It was so heated, the friends had to take a break from one another for a few weeks.
Luke was surprised to see conversations Hannah was having with her co-stars, Paige DeSorbo and Amanda Batula, as they differed significantly from what she told him. The two spent a great deal of time together on and off camera.
Luke told Hannah on the podcast that he thought he was “clear” about his intentions with her and that she was satisfied with their relationship. Hannah saw things differently and went to Amanda and Paige to vent about her feelings. The former tennis player admitted that previous relationship experiences had led her to feel undesired by Luke.
The two tried to talk about their feelings, but it didn’t end well. After a few conversations failed to get anywhere, Luke tried texting Hannah about his feelings. That action didn’t sit well with the reality star.
“I didn’t like your angry text,” she told him on the podcast.
Communication stopped there and picked up at the reunion. It was the first time they had seen or spoken to one another in weeks, which led to a lot of tension being released. Since then, the duo cleared the air and repaired their friendship.
The pair discussed their futures. Luke said he hoped to be “married with kids.”
It is unclear whether the two will try to establish a romantic relationship. Both have said they plan to be friends for a long time. Luke stated he “loved” their friendship.
The current season of Summer House concluded airing in May. There hasn’t been any word as to whether the show will return for a fifth season, although stars Kyle Cooke and Amanda Batula recently stated they would be up for a quarantine version.
